In September 2012 the Chairman, Jim Apps, had a special birthday which he tried to keep a secret. Unfortunately it did not remain a secret for long!!! The clubhouse was festooned with banners announcing the number of years and a birthday cake was produced while everyone sang "Happy Birthday". This was very embarrassing for him but the cake was a treat for everyone else on a wet Sunday afternoon. The cake was not big enough for the correct number of candles!! Thanks to Tina Melsome for the surprise (I do know when she is due for a big birthday!!!).
